Appalachian State, Western Carolina Host Big Southern Conference Games Saturday

Both Western Carolina and Appalachian State will host big Southern Conference games on Saturday, on an afternoon with a full slate around the league.

The Mountaineers look to remain in the thick of the early North Division race, as Appalachian State hosts Davidson in a key inter-divisional clash on Saturday afternoon. The Davidson-Appalachian State rivalry is among the most heated in the Southern Conference. The Mountaineers have won three straight against the Wildcats.

Davidson hasn't beaten Appalachian State since someone named Stephen Curry suited up for the Wildcats.

Meanwhile, Western Carolina will look for its sixth straight win against Furman when the Paladins come calling at the Ramsey Center on Saturday afternoon. The Paladins come in reeling a bit, having lost five of their last six games, including a 56-50 setback just up the road at Appalachian State on Thursday night. Furman is just 2-7 away from Timmons Arena this season.

Other matchups on Saturday include Chattanooga at Samford (3 p.m. EST), Elon at College of Charleston (4 p.m.), UNC-Greensboro at the Citadel (7 p.m.) and Georgia Southern at Wofford (7 p.m.). Check back for updates throughout the afternoon.

Following is a look at the two featured games.
